Well, we have been busy busy busy around the office this week! Lots to show and tell today!
We recently celebrated my daughter’s first birthday with a small family get-together at our house. Of course, I had to at least decorate a little bit, and went with pink and mint green tissue puffs, a decorated 3D number 1, and a “Happy Birthday” banner made with pink cardstock, green cupcake liners and alphabet stickers. I also made cupcakes in cute striped paper cups, and tried my hand at cake decorating for the first time ever on her little 4” round smash cake. I’m no expert, but it was fun – and the birthday girl didn’t seem to mind the imperfections!

It’s Sarah’s birthday next week, so Jeni and I made her a birthday card and noticeboard (top). The notice board was inspired by one that I made for myself a while back, which is made from a decoupaged photoframe, Liberty Art fabric, ribbon and beads. Sarah’s is made from a corkboard, Amy Butler fabric, ribbon and buttons. We’ve also got brownies and lemon cake in the office today too, courtesy of Sarah!
